This summer, Lumberjacks traveled around the country and the world, spending time with friends and family, enjoying the outdoors, learning and sharing their Lumberjack pride. From campervanning around New Zealand and paragliding in Colombia to hiking glaciers in Alaska and river rafting in Montana, students, faculty and staff took advantage of the season.

When you travel, don’t forget to tag NAU in your photos on social media or send your photos to—they may be featured in NAU News.
